Whether it’s a going away party when you move to Yemen, a Friendsgiving dinner in your unaffordable NYC apartment, or just having some nibbles during a binge viewing party, The One with All the Recipes will be there for you

The One With All the Recipes

After having fairly recently re-watching all of F.R.I.E.N.D.S with my daughter, I was eager to see this book. Although not associated with the show or network, the author did a good job of finding food that is mentioned or eaten on the show and making a recipe out of it.

The meals are separated into Appetizers, Salads and Sides; Brunch & Lunch; Dinner; Desserts and Drinks. Try Creamy Artichoke Dip, Sweet Potato and Marshmallow Casserole (from a Thanksgiving episode), Soap Opera Turkey Sandwich, Chicken Pox Spaghetti and Salad, Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich, TV Dinner Pigs in a Blanket, Engagement Ring Lasagna, Breakup Pizza, Divorced Parents Pumpkin Pie, Floor Cheesecake or Fun Irish Coffee.

I really appreciated that the recipes are simple to follow and featured everyday ingredients so they are great for the average Canadian/American as the food will fit with your style and be easy to make.
